What is mini dv interlacing, and what does deinterlacing do?

First off, I’m sorry for posting so much here, i’m just having a rather hard time finding the info i’m looking for just by searching it up online. One of the main things I really don’t understand is what interlacing / deinterlacing is, and how it relates to editing footage & posting it to a platform like youtube.

I have a shoot coming up i’m using mini dv for and really want to make sure the edit is as high of quality as possible. I’m out of town so we’re going to be dropping the tape off to get transferred somewhere, I called and it seems like they know what they’re doing, but i’m not sure if they’re using firewire or not. I also don’t know if firewire is the best option for transferring, but that’s what i’ve gathered.
